Couples Therapy in New Haven, CT—Counselors and Therapists

Many of us are in relationships with that special someone to experience life with. It starts out happy and exciting and you can’t seem to get enough of each other. People often refer to this as the “honeymoon stage.” It feels like you are both on top of the world. It’s often when this phase of your relationship starts to fade that a couple is met with new obstacles they have to overcome. This can be a time that feels scary and hard but luckily, there are couples counselors who can step in to help.

You can’t just give up on someone because the situation is not ideal. Great relationships are not great because they have no problems. They are great because both people care enough about the other person to find a way to make it work. –Author Unknown

There are so many different reasons to seek out the help of a couples therapist. Jealousy, lack of trust, and different visions of the future are all common reasons. Couples counselors are experts at helping couples overcome the challenges they face and work towards a healthier, more open relationship. If you think that you and your partner would benefit from speaking with a professional, consider partnering with a couples therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in New Haven, CT.

How Does Couples Therapy Work?

Couples therapy can benefit every committed couple, regardless of age, background, or how long you have been together. Many couples put off seeking the help of a counselor because one partner may not be ready, they might feel ashamed, or they didn’t know it could actually help. However, there is no reason to put off seeking the support you need to work towards overall happiness.

A few specific relationship issues that are often discussed in couples counseling include:

  • Poor communication skills
  • Lack of understanding
  • Infidelity
  • Intimacy issues
  • Lying
  • Sexual problems
  • Financial concerns
  • Parenting choices
  • Jealousy, anger, resentment
  • Dependency or co-dependency

These are common relationship issues, but they are not the only relationship issues. Couples counseling often leads to feelings of warmth, connection, and improved wellness. When unresolved conflicts are left alone for too long, it can worsen your bond and decrease your overall mental, social, and physical health.

Our team of professional psychologists care deeply about helping you and your partner. They will meet with you together to understand what your goals and challenges are of the relationship. In addition, they will be able to see what concerns you have as individuals and how to work together to conquer them. We understand that every situation is unique. That’s why we personalize treatment plans for all of our clients.

How You Can Save Your Relationship
